Gossamer Gear released the new version of their popular Mariposa pack. The weight is similar to the old model, but the new one looks much slicker. The Robic nylon fabric should be a bit tougher than the old Dyneema for similar weight (but it looks way cooler!). I’ve tested other packs that use the material, and I love it so far. I fell hard on some rocks, and the Robic doesn’t show a scratch.
The shoulder harness has also been upgraded. It should be more comfortable for everyone, but women will see a huge improvement over previous GG models.
I haven’t laid hands on this pack yet, so don’t necessarily take this as an endorsement. Check it out and judge for yourself!
DISCLOSURE: I’m a Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador. They did not ask me to post this notice. I just thought I’d share because the new pack looks cool.
